Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who has emerged as the key advocate for secure borders, keeping to the rules and an organized handling of the millions of illegal aliens now inside the United States says there is a clear goal that Americans should have for the newcomers: Make them taxpayers.
"What I'm saying is let's get them work visas, normalize them, tax them, make them taxpayers," the senator said in an exclusive interview with WND reporter Taylor Rose.
"They not going home. Even the crowd yelling 'Amnesty! That person's for amnesty' ... Are they for sending these people home? Do they want us to put them in concentration camps, on buses and send them back home?
"I don't think anyone's proposing that. So they're here illegally. What I'm trying to do is say let's make them legal here and give them work visas, and put them in the process."
Paul addressed illegal aliens, work visas, e-Verify, blue-collar jobs and the need to have a familiarity with the English language in a wide-ranging interview with WND.
